Sacerdot means priest in Latin and hence its adjective form sacerdotal which I became acquainted with in The Faith Instinct by Nicholas Wade.

The author covered the fascinating transition from peripatetic hunter gatherer societies who somewhat privately worshipped Rain, sun and moon Gods TO settled societies where the people worshipped its strongest members and attributed God like powers to them which led to the worship of men(priests/sacerdots )
